Nepomuk-KDE gets more attention - and better Dolphin integration

Filed under
KDE

/home/liquidat: While aKademy 2007 took place Mandriva used the advantage to highlight their involvement with the Nepomuk-KDE project. The press release drew a line between the Nepomuk-KDE project and the article “As we may think” from Vannevar Bush. That was indeed a nice PR move.

Filed under

C|Net: Long gone are the days of having to compile your own kernel in order to run the open-source operating system.

Misleading InformationWeek GPLv3 article

Filed under
OSS

Freesoftware Mag: LINUS CALLS GPLv3 "A FINE CHOICE" - is a title that InformationWeek could have used for their article. It would have been very selective quoting, but that doesn't seem to be a problem for InformationWeek. Nor does pretending that old emails are new emails, or misrepresenting people.

Linux in the Law Office

Filed under
Linux

Legal Technology Blog: It seems that every year there are claims by some industry pundits that this is the “Year of Linux.” Obviously, they have been wrong to date. However, a couple things have happened recently that have led me to believe that, even if not in 2007, then by the end of the decade, Linux will have its year.

  • Security advisories for Tuesday
  • FOI: NHS Trusts are ransomware pin cushions [Ed: Windows]
    The FOI requests found that 87 per cent of attacks came via a networked NHS device and that 80 per cent were down to phished staffers. However, only a small proportion of the 100 or so Trusts responded to this part of the requests. "These results are far from surprising. Public sector organisations make a soft target for fraudsters because budget and resource shortages frequently leave hospitals short-changed when it comes to security basics like regular software patching," said Tony Rowan, Chief Security Consultant at SentinelOne. "The results highlight the fact that old school AV technology is powerless to halt virulent, mutating forms of malware like ransomware and a new more dynamic approach to endpoint protection is needed.
